, you'd be hard- pressed to find a ford minivan'' worth of israelis that are anti- american. they want to like an american president. whatever their differences, for the most part, every stop along the visit is designed, choreographed to touch deeper chords in israeli society, whether it is the shrine of the books, or the stop at hertzel's tomb, or talking to israeli kids about their future in the 21st century. these are things obama will do very well at. i think this trip -- i would be surprised if it is not a success. there'll be some pickups, -- some hiccups, but the big piece, the public part i think is going to be successful to the extent it can. the way i see it, some say obama is just checking a box. i think he sees that the way towards managing his relationship with the israeli government runs through the israeli public. it does not mean that netanyahu is completely poll focused. i think the issue of iran as a gut issue for netanyahu. it is not just looking at public opinion. certainly having public opinion more on his side, even if it is not a dramatic change, could only help

. general motors sold more hybrid bugles than ever before. ford is selling some of the most fuel efficient cars. we are helping businesses succeed and we are creating good, middle-class jobs in america. so, we are making progress, but the only way to break this cycle of spiking gas prices is to shift our cars entirely off oil. that is why i called on congress to set up an energy security trust to fund research and the new technologies that will help us reach that goal. i would like to take credit for this idea because it is a good idea, but i cannot. basically my proposal builds up a proposal that was put forward by a nonpartisan coalition that includes retired generals and admirals and ceos. they came together around a simple idea -- much of our energy is drawn from lands and waters that we own together. but they proposed is to take some oil and gas revenue from public lands and put it toward research that will benefit the public. we can support american ingenuity without adding a dime to the deficit. we can support scientists that are designing new engines that are more energy efficient
